    The same thing Americans did during 1980 Olympics.

    No, the Americans stayed home. Big difference.

    If Olympics were held in Israel I am sure Iranians would stay home too.

    But they aren't held in Israel. They are held in other places, and Iranians still refuse to wresle the Israeli's, erego making the Olympics a religious/political spectacle. The U.S. didn't force anybody to talk about staying home in 1980, nor did they alter the competition as it occurred. Nobody else's Olympic experience was hurt by the U.S. staying home.

    If we're going to go somewhere other than "Slay is a big proselytizing asshole" with this thread, someone can pm me and let me know. Like I said in my last post, I had some amazing foresight as to what this thread would turn out to be.

    Closed again.
